According to the municipality’s acting administrative officer Dal  Bahadur Gharti, some 130 differently-abled people got ID cards from a mobile camp that reached all 13 wards.

The camp lasted for a week. “As it would be difficult for differently-abled persons to reach the  municipal office to get ID, we decided to reach out to the wards and oblige them with the identity cards,” said Deputy Mayor Bhawana Bhandari.
